Eccentric business magnate, investor, and engineer Elon Musk surprised many when he smoked marijuana during a recent live interview with comedian-turned-podcast-host Joe Rogan.

During a two-hour interview, the pair spoke about a range of topics including the Tesla CEO’s upcoming innovations, public perception about him, how consumerism is fuelling technology and innovation, among a number of other topics.

As the pair wrapped up the interview, Rogan lit up a large cigarette filled with a marijuana and tobacco blend and proceeded to smoke it before Musk eagerly asked: “Is that a joint or is it a cigar?”

“No. It’s uh, marijuana and tobacco,” responded Rogan as he passed the joint to a colleague off-camera.

“You probably can’t do this because of stockholders, right?” Rogan asked Musk, before offering him the joint.

“I mean it’s legal, right?,” Musk asked, before accepting the cigarette and taking a puff.

The pair then spoke about drugs and alcohol before ending off the interview.

Marijuana consumption is legal in the state of California, where the podcast is based, reports My Broadband.
